“I guess I was. … They had a lot to live up to with last year’s team … and they owe it to Cole Aldrich; he’s my man because he’s from Minnesota too.”

KU seems to always pull out a Big 12 championship or Big 12 Tourney Championship in the end, so it really isn't that surprising.

They question now is HOW are going to do against NON Big 12 Teams... They have shown a history of choking when it counts (last year being the exception)

Karlin is majoring in himself?

I tend to repeat repeat repeat things too, after having a couple refills refills. As soon as I get looking, it's time to go home (by myself, thank you very much)

I think I would've been had Danny Manning not been an assistant on the team.

He went through it before.

Lost a lot of games early then came back late in the year.

Experience counts.
